Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 20, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta THl lETHSRlDGl HESAID Tuoidoy, Junt 20, 1972 SULLY SAYS -By Pat Anti-trust laivs don't affect game T DON'T know how many of you watched the final round of the U.S. Open Sunday afternoon! bul Jack Nicklaus was full value for. his victory. Waiching the three-hour show I found myself hop- ing that Arnold Palmer or Ilomeros Blancas or Lee Trcvino would press Nicklaus for the lead. I wanted to see a head-to-head battle and possibly even a play- off. It goes without saying that 1 didn't get my wish. Nicklaus was a solid, three-stroke victor. After it was all over 1 found myself having thoroughly enjoyed Nicklaus' display of pressure golf. No one deserved the 1972 U.S. Open title more than Nicklaus. Sentimentalists will disagree. Trevmo, defending champion left a hospital bed in El Paso to take part. He finished in a tie for fourth at 295 with Blancas. Both were five strokes off the pace set by Nicklaus. What about Palmer, at -12 hoping for his first ma- jor title in the past four years? He made a charge- but then faded. were those who said the course, Pebble Beach, was the eventual winner. Not on your life. Nicklaus won the 1072 Open. He fought off all battled a 30-mile an hour wind and challenges, treacherous course and, despite what some might think, won it decisively. people Baseball will remain exempt WASHINGTON (AP) For Uiird lime in 50 years, the T.S. Supreme Court lias refused overturn baseball's unique talus as (lie only sport exempt anti-trust laws. The higticst court in the U.S. Uius threw the matter back at n seemingly disinterested C o n- gress, which has adopted none of the more than SO bills intro- duced in the last two decades to change baseball's reserve sys- tem which binds a player to one team and one team only. In a S-lo-3 ruling Monday against a suit brought by for- mer outfielder Curt Flood, the court's refusal to redefine the reserve clause raised the possi- bility of another and more mas- What has come over Astros' pitching staff? Whether or not he finished two over par after 72 holes, he led or shared the lead in all four rounds lie won it with consistency. But Use most important factor in his victory is that it keeps alive his hopes for a grand slam. With the Masters and Open to his credit he now must win the British Open and the PGA title to achieve what no other golfer in history has done. This is what it is all about for Nicklaus in 1972. With his win Sunday he tied Bobby Jones for most major tournament victories, 13. Sunday he became the first man to win the Open three times. There have been two-time winners and four-time winners but never a three-time The British Open is set for July 12-15 at Muir- field while the American PGA will be decided in Birmingham, Mich., August 3-6. It would be easy to say he won't make it. Hie odds are strongly against him. In golf, it is one man against the rest. No matter if the man is Nicklaiid, Palmer or Trevino. What he earns he earns on his own merits. As it now stands, Nicklaus has earned the right to be called one of the greatest golfers of all time. Should he pull off a grand slam this summer the arguments that he is not the greatest of. all time, if any, would have to be weak. _ __ Short sport STAUB INJURED HOUSTON (AP) Rusty Staub, New York Mets' most productive hitter this season, will miss several games be- cause of a severely sprained right hand, the National League baseball club said Monday. rat would like to stay In base- ball.

(CP) Ted Gerela, a veteran place- dcker in the Canadian Foot- ball League, said Sunday night he has turned down four offers from National Football League clubs in the U.S. and agreed to terms with British Columbia Lions of the CFL. TO MAKE UP MIND MONTREAL Phil Goyette, former centre with four National Hockey League teams, said Monday he will know by sometime today whether or not he will accept the position as coach with Les Nordiques Quebec City's entry in the new World Hockey Association. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Pittsburgh Pirates blasted their way out of a rut Monday night, but Houston Astros have found a groove they'd like lo stay in. The Pirates, shut out by San Diego Padres 4-0 and 1-0 in their last two starts and score- less for 23 Innings, erupted for 16 home runs by Roberto Clcmente, Gene Alley and At pasted Los Angeles Dodgers 13-3. The Astros, meanwhile, got their second consecutive one-hit pitching performance when Larry Dierker limited New York to a lone single as Houston defeated the Mets 3-0 for the As- tros' fifth straight victory. As a result, Pittsburgh moved back into first place in the Na- lional League East by one-half game over the Mets, while the Astros pulled within a half- game of first-place Cincinnati in the National-League West. The Reds were blanked by Montreal Expos 2-0. In the only other National League baseball action, Chicago Cuhs nipped San Francisco Gianls 7-6 in 11 innings in an afternoon game. Philadelphia Phillies game at Atlanta and San Diego's contest at St. Louis were rained out. In the American League, Bos- ton Red Sox bombed Texas Bangers 12-0, California Angels edged Baltimore Orioles 4-3 and Oakland Athletics beat Detroil Tigers 7-3. Cleveland Indians' game with Minnesota Twins was rained out while New York Yankees, Milwaukee Brewers Kansas City Royals and Chicago White Sox were not scheduled.

"I've had better he said, "but never better control." Montreal's Bill Stoneman shut out Cincinnati Reds on four sin- gles, while Tim Foil and Ron Woods drove in the Expos' runs with sacrifice flies, "It wasn't the best I've pitched this year, but it was one of the said Sloneman, 6-5. "I Ilirew mainly the sinking fast ball and the change." Braves happy, Cepeda returns ATLANTA CAP) Orlando Cepeda Is happy again and At- lanta Braves are pleased to have their slugging first base- man back.

Monday, Cepeda, Harris and Braves' director of player per- sonnel, Eddie Robinson, met, patched up the matter and Ce- peda was reinstated. "It's just a matter of commu- nication. I just want them (the Braves) to let me know what's going on, why I'm not playing. That's all." sivc general strike next spring lhan the one wlu'ch delayed the start of the 1972 baseball season for more than a week, "Technically, it is a subject for collective said Richard Moss, counsel for tho Major League Baseball Players Association. "But practically, it is the subject for a strike, a long strike. You either forget it or strike over it, and both are unfortunate courses." The so-called basic agreement between players and owners ex- pires Dec. 31, along with pen- sion and health insurance agree- ments reached after the recent strike in April. The basic agree- ment covers minimum salary, expenses and many other rules, "Every attempt was made by the players to discuss the re- serve system and every attempt was met with a stone-wall re- said Moss, "If the atti- tudes on the other side have changed, we'll be delighted to sit down and bargain. But we'd have to see it first." However, one baseball execu- Uve, asking to remain unidenti- fied, said, "I tope we're intelli- gent and man- agement negotiate this before we're forced to do it." That power rests with Con- gress. But Justice Harry A. Blackmun, delivering the Su- preme Court's majority opinion, noted that Congress has had a long lime to do something about it and said the that it did notliing indicates more tban "mere Congressional silence and passivity." In fact, he said, the Supreme Cepeda, asked if he was as- sured he would play, said: "No. I wasn't. But I am happy with the way things turned out. Eddie Robinson is a great man. He tried to solve everything in a good way." In a statement, Robinson said he was pleased to announce that everything had been resolved. Cepeda, batting .333 with three home runs and eight runs batted in this year, in leaving Saturday claimed no one on the Braves would ask him how he fell.

At the Astrodome, Dierker showed the Houston fans some- thing, too, duplicating Jerry Reuss's one-hit effort against the Phillies Sunday. It was only the eighth time back-to-back one-hitters have been pitched.

Baseball commissioner Bowie Kuho said the decision "opens the way for renewed collective bargaining on the reserve sys- tem following the 1972 season." EXPLAINS STAND Exactly want was Pappas, player representative of Chicago Cubs: "The ruling doesn't make a lot of difference and the players were not looking to make utter chaos, which complete elimina- tion of the reserve clause would do. However, some owners now have an idea how the players feel. "What we are going to seek at the meeting table is an agree- ment that will give veteran players some freedom in negoti- ating. After a certain time with a club, say five years or eight years, a player should be abla to sit down and negotiate on whether he can get more money if he's worth it, or be free to bargain with another club." In its decision, the court agreed that baseball is a busi- ness engaged in Interstate com- merce and Justice Blackmun called ils anti-trust exemption "an aberration" and "an excep- tion and an anomaly."
